This chicken pineapple stir fry is a healthy dinner recipe that will help your family to eat their greens. You can prep the ingredients ahead of time for a busy night.
Everyone in my family enjoys this chicken pineapple stir fry. I started making this dish when I first received bok choy in my farm share and I didn’t know what else to do with it. Over the years, I’ve concealed several different leafy greens in this dish. Any recipe that gets my children to happily eat a healthy green vegetable is a success in my book.
You can prepare the ingredients ahead of time for a busy night. Then when it’s time for dinner, just load up your wok and the meal will be ready in no time. The sauce is mild, so I recommend adding additional soy sauce, hot chili sauce, or fresh ginger if you’re looking for a stronger flavor. This recipe is a great starting point that can be adapted to your tastes.
